Ok, here is the truth.
My light switch is different than original stock.
My replacement is one of these On/Off/On type.
By looking at it, the original has a on/off switch that feeds the High and Low light switch when On.
Tail light works fine if connected to either H or L on headlamp connector.
Bridgeing H and L to Taillight (yellow) would result in both light bulbs of the headlight to be constantly On in both H or L position.

Easier done than said.
Suggestions?

1 is High / Low beam

2 is Lights On/Off.

Shame that I can't upload the full diagram.

You posted this same part of the wiring diagram before, and I tried to explain the workings of the switch. Since then you have said you are using a different switch. Without knowing how your after market switch works I cannot help you further with the wiring of the switch.
